We made it to Charleston last night about 9pm & Emma had all her pre-op testing today which was brutle. She had to have a sedated echo so she couldn't eat for 5.5 until she woke up from the meds & lets just say she was very unhappy. She was one hungery baby at 12:30 when she was finally able to eat her first bottle of formula.
The surgery is scheduled for tomorrow at 7:30am & we have to have her there at 5:30am. Its going to be an early morning & a long day. The surgeon, Dr. B is predicting the surgery to take 5-6 hours & she will be in the hospital about 5-8 days. He did tell us it is a pretty complicated surgery since her VSD's are inside the heart & not on the surface but he is one the best in the country & we trust him & the good Lord to take care of our Emma. Please keep all of us, our Emma & the medical staff at MUSC Children's Hospital in your prayers tomorrow.
